This was a last minute stop while on business in the NE Iowa area. Bed was comfortable and it was quiet. The price was a bit less than other hotels in the area as well. Looks like it would be nice for a long term stay as the rooms all have kitchenettes.

We were in town for one evening and my husband booked this hotel. For the price, I didn't expect it to be as great as it was! The hotel staff was friendly and smiling. The rooms were very clean, and the bathroom was larger than we expected. The bed was super comfy and the hotel as a whole was quiet.... More

The rates are very reasonable. They are conveniently located by a mall, many restaurants, a casino and two highways. The rooms are very clean and the staff is very helpful with the area. Would definitely stay again.

Spent the night at this hotel while visiting Northern Iowa University. It was exactly what I needed. Peace, comfort and quiet. The room was clean and fully equipped. If I'm ever in the area again, I will definitely stop here again. Nice selection of restaurants in the area as well.

The booking request was for a non-smoking room, however the room Candlewood booked was a smoking room that was unbearable. There was no way we could stay in that room with our young boys.

Very friendly and helpful staff. Clean, comfortable room at a good price. Great value. Good location near restaurants, shopping (mall next door) and the highway. Suite hotel so you have a kitchen; however, they do not serve breakfast.
